We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice that thorn bushes have roses… Abraham Lincoln
The Wade Creek House, located on an acre in the city limits of Estacada, has a real country feel. Chickens, a country garden, old grain silo, and the quaint 1940's house is just the beginning of what you will find. Purchased and remodeled about 6 years ago, we then added onto the house about 3 years ago, and in December of 2011 we added “The Roost" which is a wonderful barn just behind the house.
We have lots of treasures: vintage, primitive, rusty, old, antiques, reclaimed, repurposed, revived, military, collectibles, garden and much more. Our many vendors make sure there is something for everyone. So bring a friend and come for a visit.. Estacada has lots to offer.

OPEN MONDAY - SATURDAY 10a - 6p and SUNDAYS 11a - 5p.

What do leaves, gardens, fleas and teas have in common..
Some of our events this month!!
(Concrete Leaves, Wall Gardens, Flea Market, Farm to Table Tea)
That sounds kind of silly but we have some great events this month and thought it would be fun to give you a picture tour of those events. First up is Nikki's Beginning Concrete Leaf Casting. Very popular. It is Saturday (tomorrow) morning July 9 at 10:30 and the class filled up so quickly that Nikki added a few more spots. I took this one last year... I rate it a 10! I had such fun. I made more and gave them as Christmas presents.
For the beginner class, Nikki uses leaves 8 inches and smaller. Her Advanced Concrete Leaf Casting is scheduled for August 11. She uses bigger leaves, teaches reinforcement, color, and more. The beginner class filled up quickly so I am sure this one will too. Call soon!
Then on June 16 at 11am, Linda is helping you make a Framed Living Wall Gardens. It is beautiful, you can use so many flower combinations and you can reuse the frame next year if you want to change your theme. Cost is $25, bring a spade and your gloves.
Jim has been working hard getting ready for the ESTACADA FLEA MARKET at The Wade Creek House. Date is June 23 beginning at 9am. The shop will be open early too. Our acre will be filled with vendors and Amy is bringing her food cart. We are soooo excited. We still have a few vendor spots available so if this is something you are interested in, give the shop a call. You can rent a 10 x 15 space for only $25.
This is a picture from our Second Saturday Sale a couple of years ago. I can't wait to find more junk finds this year!!! Don't miss it! FREE Admittance.
On June 30th at 10am, Annette Reisbeck will be helping us make a Nuno Felted Spiral Scarf. Annette is an amazing felter, and she will be teaching us how to combine wet felting fiber and a square of silk scarf to create a ruffly, spiral scarf when it is dry. There are all kinds of color combinations to experiment with to end up with a finished scarf looking totally different from the original materials. Wear casual or dressy - an all season scarf. Cost is $55 - all supplies provided. Extra material kits are available for sale because you won't want to stop at just one.
So that is June but there is one more event that you will want to put on your calendars. Saturday, July 7th is our Farm to Table Country Tea. RSVP BY JULY 1 REQUIRED!! Here you will be treated like royalty with linens, china, and silver. And that is only the beginning. See pictures below..... Cost is $25.
